I love when CJ comes up with a good idea for dinner that I wouldn't think of with myself. Clam Chowder in the middle of summer? Sure! We made this about a week ago on a chilly rainy evening, and it was the perfect complement to a movie night on the couch.
Classic Clam Chowder Recipe
4 slices bacon, diced
1 chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 cups water
3 1/2 cups cubed red potatoes with skin
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
ground black pepper to taste
3 cups half-and-half
3 tablespoons butter
2 (10 ounce) cans minced clams
Chop up the bacon, and cook in a large pot.

Enjoy with bread for dipping, and a glass of white wine!
